Default RE: Need User's Advice on Sig Mini Plane Bipe

It comes out tail heavy with A .46 two stroke. I had an OS fs70 that I installed as the second engine and that cured that problem. If I built another one I would have ailerons on the top and bottom wing to give the roll rate the needed boost but that's just how I fly.
The ground handling problem was helped out A lot by having A switch I used for take offs. I would hit the switch and it added some right rudder, after I got used to it I just added some negative expo to the rudder, about -40% and I didn't have anymore ground handling problems. After you get used to how it handles there is no real problems but it is short coupled. Today I don't have many problems with any plane but back then it was A hand full, A great little plane in the air though. Have fun with it.
